The National Trust of Australia is the association responsible for overseeing Australia’s culturally and historically significant buildings. The major requirement to restore a National Trust building is to remove all alterations that have been incorrectly added, and to restore the building to its former glory using only heritage consistent materials. Some of the better known landmarks we have restored include:
When a building reaches a certain age, or achieves a level of cultural or historical significance, it becomes registered as a heritage structure. From this point, all renovation work must be done in line with the building’s traditional aesthetic values. Sometimes this means removing inconsistent and clumsily-added later additions, using era-appropriate materials and techniques, or doing renovations and adding modern functionalities like air conditioning without detracting from the structure’s traditional aesthetics or damaging particular features.
Because it is a specialised field, it requires specifically skilled workers and often calls for traditional techniques and special materials. Many wall restoration and roofing contractors are not qualified or licensed to perform these jobs.
The Roof & Wall Doctor is, however. We have the accreditations, experience and commitment to ensure that all heritage roofing and other restorations are carried out to the highest standards and with the utmost respect to tradition. This is why a number of major institutions and government entities have made us their building restoration service provider.
We are the only ones who can offer over 30 years of experience and 4000+ jobs completed with a very high satisfaction rate.
